Being Mexican American is tough. Anglos jump all over you if you don’t speak English perfectly, Mexicans jump all over you if you don’t speak Spanish perfectly. We got to be twice as perfect as anybody else. And we gotta prove to the Mexicans how Mexican we are, and we gotta prove to the Americans how American we are. We gotta be more Mexican than the Mexicans, and more American than the Americans; both at the same time! It’s exhausting! Man, nobody knows how tough it is to be Mexican American.

I think this applies to a lot of races though
